Barbara R. Sear, Livingston County Treasurer, has announced that real estate tax bills were mailed on Thursday, May 26, 2016. A total of 25,727 tax bills were mailed. The estimated tax revenue to be collected on behalf of the 193 taxing bodies in the County is $64,034,465.28.
The first installment will be due on Friday, July 15, 2016 and the second installment will be due on Thursday, September 15, 2016. Payments may be made at most County banks, by mail or at the Treasurer’s office in the Historic Courthouse in Pontiac. A drop box is located next to the south entrance of the Courthouse for after-hours payments.
Payments using a credit or debit card can also be made on the County’s website, www.livingstoncountyil.gov, on the Treasurer’s page. This is a change from previous years. We are pleased to announce a partnership with GovTech Services Inc. to provide taxpayers with this convenience. The credit card companies do charge a convenience fee and the fee will appear separately on both your receipt and monthly statement.
After September 15th payments MUST be made in person at the Treasurer’s office in the Courthouse. Personal checks will not be accepted after October 11, 2016 and payment after that date must be made with a cashier’s check, money order or cash. Delinquent Notices will be mailed on October 17, 2016. The names of delinquent property owners will be published during the week of October 24, 2016.
Several items of information are printed on the reverse side of the tax bill which may answer most taxpayer questions. For further information readers may call our office at (815) 844-2306 between 8:00 A.M. and 4:30 PM daily.
